In 1990, the HOLLYWOOD CHAMBER OF COMMERCE honored TUNA with his own Star on THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME. TUNA was the first KHJ Boss Jock to receive a Star on THE WALK OF FAME, and was also inducted in 2008 into THE NATIONAL RADIO HALL OF FAME. Additionally, he was inducted into his home state NEBRASKA BROADCASTERS ASSOCIATION HALL OF FAME in 1999.
Said TUNA, "I couldn't be happier about the invitation to be part of KDOC-TV! With their daily lineup of iconic TV comedy and drama series, classic movies, plus live sports presentations like the L.A. GALAXY, it's my whole SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA life and career of my favorite shows and sports I've watched!"
